‘Jodha Akbar’ fame Ravi Bhatia On Doing Intimate Scene With Shafaq Naaz, “I Was Hell Nervous”

Published

Actor Ravi Bhatia recently made a digital debut with ‘Halala’ and for the first time, the actor has shot the intimate scenes. Initially, he was quite apprehensive about doing it, but later he decided to go ahead after discussing it with his wife Yulida.

“I was in two minds whether I should do it or not. That’s why I discussed it with Yulida, who is literally my boss and then a wife. She completely understands my work and is the one who encouraged me to do it without hesitation,” said Ravi, who earlier did show like Dharam Veer, Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se, Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat and Jodha Akbar, along with two Indonesian series Roro Jonggrang and Cinta Di Langit Taj Mahal.

He further added, “It’s not a cakewalk for the actors to shoot a steamy scene, especially when they are shooting for the first time. I was hell nervous, that’s why I kept asking Shafaq (Naaz), ‘How are we going to do this?’. Like me, she was also quite uncomfortable before the scenes. The production team and our director Deepak Pandey made us comfortable. All the intimate scenes were shot aesthetically and the outcome was beautiful. I am glad that I got an opportunity to do something different.”

The series showcased the issues stemming post ‘Triple Talaq’ faced by women in the Muslim community. Apart from Ravi, ‘Halala’ also stars Shafaq Naaz, Deepika Singh, Eijaz Khan and Neelima Azeem.

Zero’s fate could have changed our fate too: Shridhar Watsar 

Published

on

Actor Shridhar Watsar is currently working on a double role in popular show Bal Veer as Tauba Tauba and Dooba Dooba. The actor who has been part of the first season of Bal Veer is very popular among kids for his portrayal.
Shridhar says,” When I worked in the first season, I received immense love from the audience specially from the kids. I remember when I was in Udaipur for the shooting of Dhadak, people over there recognised me for my role for Bal Veer. When the second season was being conceived, the maker Vipul Shah asked me to continue for the second season as well. Being called for the second season was a special feeling .”
Speaking about his double role Shridhar says,” Playing double role is challenging, Tauba Tauba and Dooba Dooba are completely opposite to each other. One is positive and the other one is negative. There is some special makeup as the character needs an extra-long ear and with that the costume is heavy. Sometimes it is tough to carry that costume in the heat for long hours. I have done theatre for a long time in my career and that is coming handy in my performance here. An actor needs to do the switch on and off when they are playing a double role.”
Shridhar pointed out an important angle of casting midget actors. He adds,” I am happy that in the last few years people have given me the opportunity but what concerns me is the type of character usually a dwarf receives in our industry. I thought Anand L Rai’s Zero will change the perception. When a superstar like Shah Rukh Khan dons the character of a dwarf then acceptance comes in a huge way. Shah Rukh Khan and Anand L Rai can change the perception of us. Zero’s fate could have changed our fate too, but unfortunately, the film did not work out and the audience rejected the film.” Speaking about his inspiration Shridhar says,” My inspiration is actor  Peter Hayden Dinklage from Game Of Thrones, he has also changed the perception for us. I have followed his work and interviews. He is very inspirational.”
